The title of the book is meant to reflect the essential idea that “forgiveness” can be an active-and powerful-healing agent, even in the wake of the most heinous experience. Whether or not a relationship can be reclaimed, there are pieces that can be salvaged from it and used to protect, to prevent, to forewarn, to move on. And in cases where restoration is possible, Hargrave outlines the steps that may be taken to facilitate a shift from victim to victor in the relationship. The author’s own moving story, which he shares here, coupled with case material and a thoughtful theoretical foundation, make this a uniquely accessible and penetrating resource for therapists and their clients.
